The V word..an easy stress free Valentines Day

Oh Valentines day...you are so cute and oh so naughty!  While it's a day to remind us to show the love to the ones we love.  It's also a day that causes insane pressure to figure out how to show that love.   Restaurants are packed and they force expensive prix fixed menus on you to be sure they can churn their customers in and out quickly for the next seating.  The price of roses climbs 200%...OH P.S. GUYS??  WE.  DO.  NOT.  WANT.  ROSES.  ooops was that out loud??  And silly heart jewelry is forced on to your neck.

Oh Mr Buterbaugh...you are too good for words...

So why don't we all do each other and the ones we love a favor and skip the forced hoopla and show the love a sweeter, less stressful way.  It's funny how some of the most thoughtful things come in small ways...

Here are a few of our faves from around the web..

How insanely cute are these Leafcutter Designs "Tiny" letters.  You can literally have any message put on them and they come in a teeny box with teeny postage and a magnifying glass... GET OUT!  

So good Leafcutter...so so good

So good Leafcutter...so so good

Nothing is better than an amazing and creative handmade (and not cheesy) gift.  You are absolutely going to tap into your inner Martha S. when you see this next V day "gift"

Celebrating the V day with your girls?  Nothing says I love you and your heart like a beautiful floral crown.

Maybe instead of stressing about "the perfect V day" we should all try to show love everyday and make the 14th the day you just add an extra shake of glitter.  

And love yourself every day!

Happy Love day!  Wanna get us a little somethin somethin??  Pass us on to your friends and family!  Let that love grow

We love you
